NEW! ELF Tinted Moisturisers

Thursday, February 24, 2011

I'm yet to try any products from ELF (Eye Lips Face). I toyed with the idea of buying a few items from their Studio line months ago, but got sidetracked and just ended up in MAC again! A couple of items arrived unexpectedly in the post for me to try over the festive period, but I just haven't had the time to so much as take them out of their box yet. I'll get round to it eventually though as I was quite impressed at first glance.

On Monday I was told by an ELF employee that they have just released new tinted moisturisers which come with SPF20 for added protection. I don't tend to really use tinted moisturisers that often - even during warmer weather, mainly because I guess I'm too used to wearing heavier coverage, so I feel a bit conscious being so 'exposed'.

Despite being told that it was a possibility I could find a match for my skin tone, deep down I was still a little sceptical. However, last night I remembered what she said, had a quick look at the website and found these:


Available in seven shades, three are aimed at those of us with deeper skin tones. The first three shades in the image above are described as:

 (L-R)

Expresso - Dark skin with yellow and red undertones

Mocha - Rich brown for medium to dark skin tones

Almond - For medium to dark skin with yellow undertones

Something to check out perhaps if you struggle to find a tinted moisturiser that compliments you. Priced at just £3.50, it won't be a costly mistake if the shade isn't quite right. I think I'll order one this week and review it shortly.


6 beauty lovers have sumthin to say:

I'm not sure I get tinted moisturisers any more. Last summer, I was addicted to them and loved the sheery coverage plus SPF but I've started to mix my moisturiser with foundation (both have SPF). It's much better imo since I get the benefits of my favourite moisturiser (plumping, fast absorbing, non greasy.etc) with a foundation that's perfectly matched to my skin.


What's your take on this?

Can't wait for your review on the Elf tinted moisturiser though - it'd be interesting to see how well their skincare products hold up.

I tried Olay Tinted moisturiser and Bobbi Brown and it broke me out! I loved the concept, but i think the coverage was too light and i didnt see a dramatic or subtle difference. I so wanted to love them, alas, I cant :(

Id like to swatch these as you can never be too sure with foundations and tinted moisturisers. Glad to see that at LAST they're catering to dark skin ladies!
